The vibe is cool in Ericeira.




Hysteric ball

November 28, 2011

A freaky version of the beach ball, and also the only ball game in the world without any rules or purpose.

Gather a bunch of over-enthusiastic Chinese people around a ball. As the ball-carrier shoots it up in the air, the catchers will start running and yelling in all directions; not always towards the ball. If you’re lucky enough to catch it, you will be surrounded silently until you shoot it up for another round.

They played that for 4 hours straight.

Beach bum

You can also escape from central Hong-Kong madness by going to the other side of the island. Hit Shek’O beach or Big Wave bay. Don’t bring your surfboard though, for this is just a marketing name. The bus road is very cool, snaking trough the hills, up and down to the beach.

I used an ISO 64 (tungsten white balance) expired film. Expired films can give surprising results and a slight pink tint. But combined with the ISO 64, usually enhancing blue tones, the pics got a full pink tint. There’s a french song saying “Je vois la vie en rose”.
